Aimee and Erik’s classically elegant Arizona wedding is the stuff dreams are made of—there’s a beautifully in love couple, a stunning setting, a plethora of emotion, and of course the romantic “I do” moment. You’ll love the pretty Southwest-meets-Georgia details (the bride is from the south) and the surprise reception performance!

Classically Elegant Arizona Wedding | Color Palette: The inspiration for our colors came from the natural landscape of the venue. El Chorro is beautiful, so I wanted something that complemented it rather than trying to do something that looked out of place. My colors were peach and patina. Patina is the color of eucalyptus which is my favorite shade of green and I choose peach, because I’m a Georgia peach! The colors played well together.

Aimee’s “father’s first look” is one of the sweetest we’ve seen—just look at her dad’s priceless reaction!

And of course the couple’s own first look was pretty special too

Classically Elegant Arizona Wedding | The Ceremony: Aimee and Erik chose to exchange vows at El Chorro’s manicured event lawn that’s nestled at the base of the mountains between Camelback & Mummy Mountains; chairs were draped with eucalyptus garland and satin ribbon. The couple’s dog Archer was given the honor of ring bearer and he played the role expertly!

Classically Elegant Arizona Wedding | Favorite Moment: It’s hard to pick one moment that stands out as our favorite when the day itself was filled with so many wonderful moments. However, there is one moment that will forever be burned into my heart.  It was the ceremony. Standing up, in front of our friends and family, professing our love and commitment to each other was something that I never imagined. It’s easy to get wrapped up in the fun wedding planning details like linens, signature cocktails and bridesmaid dresses. However, it all comes down to the one you are marrying… I remember standing under the arbor across from Erik, holding hands–looking deep into each others eyes. I remember how green his eyes were in that moment and how tightly we held onto each others hands. His eyes were filled with so much love, trust and commitment. Everyone else faded away and we were in our own little world.

Classically Elegant Arizona Wedding | Cocktail Hour: While Aimee and Erik strolled through El Chorro’s immaculate grounds, guests enjoyed the outdoor patio at the venue and sipped on margaritas; Aimee’s mother lovingly created the gold frame escort card display.

Classically Elegant Arizona Wedding | The Reception: Guests proceeded into Casa Paloma for the reception. The room was decorated with both classic and distinct touches; gold and cream linens bore an aztec pattern, floral arrangements of greenery, peach and fresh white flowers topped each table, and peaches served as place card holders. Aimee and Erik chose to dine at a sequined sweetheart table where they had the best view of their loved ones.

Classically Elegant Arizona Wedding | Dessert: A sweets table included several cakes that were decorated with both southwest accents and peaches; french macrons were detailed with the couple’s favorite sports teams.

Classically Elegant Arizona Wedding | The Big Surprise: During my maid of honor’s speech, she welcomed up the best man (groom’s brother) to “help give the speech”. Much to our surprise, they busted out in song and dance with their own rendition of the “Erik and Aimee love story”. They rapped, verbatim, our love story. It was hilarious. At the very end of their song all the wedding guests got up from their chairs and headed onto the dance floor for a flashmob. It was the most amazing thing I’ve ever witnessed in my life. All our friends and family did a choreographed routine to “Uptown Funk”

Here’s the video- it’s really fun to watch!

Classically Elegant Arizona Wedding | Late Night Snacks: Aimee and Eric’s favorite snacks, cheeseburger sliders and fries, served as fuel for the evening’s continued revelry.

Classically Elegant Arizona Wedding | Elite Circle Wedding Vendors: We choose El Chorro because its breathtaking of course! We had dinner there when we were visiting my father who lives Scottsdale a few years back. After we got engaged, Erik and I started discussing venue locations right away. He brought up El Chorro and it was no-brainer for me. Scottsdale is not only where my father lives, but it’s a fun location for a destination wedding…Believe it or not, I interviewed 7 wedding coordinators over the phone. I used to be in corporate events so finding the right person to spearhead our wedding was very important to me. I needed someone that would understand my type-A personality and be “on-it”.  As we say in the south “The devil’s in the details”. Stephanie from A Day to Cherish knocked it out of the park on our initial phone call. She really sold me on the fact that she knew our venue like the back of her hand. Plus, she has a similar working style that I have. She was very responsive over email, which was critical for planning a wedding remotely.  To top it off, she has a great rapport with the El Chorro staff.   

Aimee and Erik, congratulations and thank you so much for sharing your classically elegant Arizona wedding with us!

Blaise & Gina’s Country Club Wedding in Phoenix
categories: floral inspiration, real weddings, reception ideas, Wedding Inspiration

There is something so very captivating about Gina and Blaise and their country club wedding in Phoenix—perhaps it’s their laid back style, perhaps it’s the expertly designed decor? Either way, we absolutely love this wedding and we know you will too!

The Proposal: Blaise proposed to me in front of my entire family on top of Table Mountain in Cape Town, South Africa (where my family is from). I soon found out that I was the only one who wasn’t in on the proposal, and I was swept off my feet! That day my mom gave me a stack of bridal and wedding magazines so we could begin the planning. My mom and I had been dreaming of my wedding day since I was a little girl–and now we could finally plan the real thing!

What was most important to you as you planned your wedding? When Blaise and I were asked by our wedding planner what we wanted on our wedding day, we both agreed that the most important thing is that everyone have the most fun time at our wedding. We are both pretty simple people; we didn’t want extra “stuff.” We didn’t want a photo booth or games and activities. We just wanted everyone to be present with us in a beautiful setting and to share in our happiness.

Country Club Wedding in Phoenix Ceremony: The wedding was originally planned to be outdoors but the weather had other plans. Luckily, the couple was working with Victoria Canada of Victoria Canada Weddings + Events who swept in with “plan B”, located a clear top tent at the last minute, and made the ceremony even more amazing than the couple dreamed it could be!

Gina recalls: Our amazing wedding planner, Victoria Canada, told us not to worry and found the most beautiful tent for our outdoor ceremony just days before the wedding. It ended up being even more beautiful and magical than we could have ever imagined–the lights strung across the tent made it feel like we were getting married under the stars.

From the planner: Gina wanted her floral to be bold but romantic; the result was floral that felt lush and overflowing, a bit wild but still elegant. 

The clear top tent was strung with lights which made the atmosphere for the ceremony quite magical!

Looking back, what is your favorite moment of the day? Our favorite moment of the wedding day was being surrounded by all of our amazing family and friends and dancing and celebrating with everyone. We felt so much love and support the entire day.

Country Club Wedding in Phoenix Reception: Guests proceeded into the ballroom for dinner and revelry amidst a sophisticated and lush garden setting; tables were dressed with deep jade linens, light and airy drape to soften the overall effect of the room, glowing candlelight, rustic centerpieces, botanic inspired chandeliers and shimmering gold detailing.

One thing that caught our attention about this reception is how there are so many layers of beautiful decor—it all comes together to create a masterfully designed reception that fits the personality of the couple to a “t”.

Sweetness: Blaise and I literally smiled so much our cheeks hurt. We are so grateful to everyone who made the day come together so flawlessly. Our amazing parents provided so much love and support, and our incredible team of vendors and Victoria Canada Weddings and Events made our dream a reality.

The four-tier “half dressed” wedding cake was also topped with the perfectly sophisticated and slightly wild flowers!

Here at Phoenix Bride & Groom, we pride ourselves on sharing the most inspiring styled shoots, real weddings, and great finds with you, our loyal readers, but one thing you may not realize (but probably totally appreciate) is that we only share what we believe is achievable by real couples planning their weddings. Completely over the top inspiration shoots are fun to look at and dream about but when we publish a styled shoot, it’s because the design is inspiring and the details are within reach of Arizona’s couples planning weddings. Today’s styled shoot (which of course utilizes the talents of local Arizona wedding vendors) is one of the most colorful Arizona wedding inspiration shoots we’ve seen and we’re sure you will adore it!

A bright color palette, thoughtful details, and an iconic setting await!

From Victoria Canada of Victoria Canada Weddings & Events: This colorful styled shoot was inspired by the iconic stain glass at the entrance to the Arizona Biltmore Resort.  Frank Lloyd Wright was the consulting architect for the building of this historic resort in 1928 and it is known as the “Jewel of the Desert”.  I styled the shoot to have vibrant jewel tone colors and patterns that reflected the famous Biltmore Block. 

Colorful Arizona Wedding Inspiration Details:

-Cake designed with stained glass motif to reflect a clean, modern and colorful feel

-Floating “Stained Glass” as a ceremony backdrop

-Laser cut wood stationery elements that are normally created with paper- this reflects Frank Lloyd Wright’s famous dedication to nature inspired design

-Color Blocked Bouquet

The bride’s gown was “Lana” by Willowby- it features a statuesque profile and lace panels that marry modern and vintage beautifully

When Victoria Canada designs any event, whether it be a wedding, ceremony, brunch, or rehearsal dinner, she always includes special touches and design details that tie the entire event together. For example, not only does the signature cocktail have an adorable Frank Lloyd Wright style stir stick, it also complements the color palette of this colorful Arizona wedding inspiration shoot.

There is probably no better example of how to infuse meaning into your wedding day than Amanda and Chris’s Real Arizona Wedding. Almost every detail from their wedding day had a deeper significance:

-The Bells of Ireland in the bride’s bouquet and centerpieces are a nod to the couple’s Irish heritage

-The Pastor is a longtime family friend of the groom’s family and former worship leader at the bride’s family church

-Guests signed magnum wine bottles during cocktail hour from DeLorimier Winery which was founded by the surgeon who saved Chris’ life as an infant

-The escort card table was placed atop wine crates purchased by the couple during a Sonoma Valley vacation

-Pictures of the bride and groom at various vacation spots around the country served as table names

-The wedding photographer, Mike Olbinski, took the couple’s very first picture together at the wedding of Amanda’s matron of honor, where Amanda and Chris first met (that picture was the escort picture for the couple’s sweetheart table)

-Guests enjoyed a late night snack of the groom’s favorite breakfast burritos with hot sauce and a guacamole bar (a surprise to the groom ).

And the icing on the cake? Placed alongside the wedding cake were black and white photos from the weddings of prior generations- a beautiful way to honor both Amanda and Chris’ families.

I don’t know if there’s ever been a bride as in love with her wedding dress as Amanda:  I have been a long time viewer of TLC’s Say Yes to the Dress and even took a picture outside of Kleinfeld’s. I knew I wanted something classy, stunning, and elegant- like Grace Kelly meets Kate Middleton. With magazine clippings in hand, my mom and I set foot in the first and only bridal salon, Schaffer’s. I tried on about nine or ten before trying on THE DRESS.  As soon as I put “her” on, I knew I was ready to say YES! Both my mom and I were in tears.  The bridal consultant added a veil to the dress to help me make my decision.  Before I knew it, I was on the phone to my dad telling him I had found my dress.  He was shocked! Chris along with my parents know that I take time to make decisions.  Not this decision.  I was sold on day one!

[The] gown was an ivory Pronovias dress with lace detailing and a sheer neckline that buttoned down the back…I loved spinning in the dress.  One of my favorite photos is at the Phoenix Country Club spinning in circles watching my dress and veil pick up in the breeze.  After the wedding, I remember starring at myself in the mirror of our Honeymoon Suite not wanting to take the dress off!  I loved my dress and look forward to using parts of “her” to create Christening dresses for our future babies!

The reception was yet another opportunity for Amanda and Chris to customize their wedding day: We met at a wedding and had been to about six weddings before our wedding, and dancing the night away was always a high priority.  We envisioned our guests dancing all night and rarely spending any time at the table…instead of our bridal party being introduced and us following, we had our bridal party get everyone out on the dance floor and dancing…as soon as everyone was dancing, we were introduced and joined our guests dancing to “Happy” by Pharrell Williams.  It was a great way capture the mood and vision of our wedding reception! 

Phoenix Bride and Groom_Real Arizona Wedding_Blue wedding_Brophy Chapel_Victoria Canada Weddings and Events_Mike Olbinski Photograp (7)

A classic color palette of blue, ivory and silver made was modern with striped table runners and tall centerpieces featuring white and green hydrangeas, and Bells of Ireland with white rose accents; the cake was infused with almond and lemon curd, and had raspberries and a butter cream icing.

What is your favorite memory from the day?

Amanda: If I have to think of just a few, I would start with my future brother in law Michael delivering a special verse to me from Chris (Philippians 4:7-8) on anxiety.  Reading this verse along with one of my bridesmaids Tara praying over me in the ready room at Brophy before walking down the aisle, really brought me peace.  I had both of my parents walk me down the aisle, which was just perfect.  I’ll always remember waiting in the hallways of the chapel with my dad thanking him for blessing us with a perfect wedding while we waited for my mom to return from lighting the unity candle.  When we started walking the aisle, my mom whispered to me to just focus on Chris at the end of the aisle.  Seeing his smiling face gazing in my direction was pure bliss!

Chris:  I choked up once that day.  As I stood between my parents, locked arm and arm with them, just as we were to enter through the doors leading down the aisle to the alter, I again remembered how fortunate I was to be marrying this woman before God and our gathered guests.

Congratulations Amanda and Chris and THANK YOU for sharing your wedding day with us!
